Kindle Ratio for 20 Oct 2010: 55%

So, an update after Children of the Mind which was the last book I selected under pre-Kindle rules. Of the previous 20 books read, 55% were available on Kindle. After this update, future updates will reflect the fact that I am giving preference to books available on Kindle in my selection process. Not that anybody cares, but for reference, those 20 books were:

  1. YES – Children of the Mind
  2. NO – Introduction to Algorithms
  3. YES – Xenocide
  4. YES – The Geography of Bliss
  5. YES – Speaker for the Dead
  6. NO – First Break all the Rules
  7. YES – Ender’s Game
  8. YES – Until the Sea Shall Free Them
  9. YES – Foucoult’s Pendulum
  10. YES – Java The Complete Reference
  11. NO – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
  12. YES – The Audacity of Hope
  13. NO – Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
  14. NO – Data Mining
  15. YES – The Children of Hurin
  16. YES – Dreams from my Father
  17. NO – The Odyssey
  18. NO – Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government (Vol II)
  19. NO – A Morbid Taste for Bones
  20. NO – Aylesbury in Old Picture Postcards

Note in the case of The Odyssey and Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government, other editions are available on Kindle, just not the specific edition I read.
